Overview

Gram’s Fairy Tales is a series of illustrated chapter books that retain the heart and characters, but not the violence, of the original Grimm tales. The stories are lyrical with touching and funny twists that make them as interesting for the adult reader as they are entertaining for children.

In this “new, kinder, gentler retelling” of Little Red Riding Hood, little Gabriella has a close and affectionate relationship with her grandmother who makes pretty things for her, one of which is the red riding hood that leads to her nickname. Little Red takes a shortcut through the forest on her way to her grandmother’s house where she encounters a frazzled wolf who is fleeing from a hunter. She rescues the wolf who returns her act of kindness by later rescuing her back.

This is the tale of Big Red and Little Red... Best Friends Forever.

Meet the Author

Susan Meredith ("Gram") is a stepmother and grandmother. Her love of books led her to bring her granddaughters to various bookstores with the invitation to "choose whichever books they might like". However, in reviewing the books, especially the classic Grimm's Fairy Tales, "Gram" (as well as the parents) were concerned about the frightening images and evil characterizations. It was this reluctance to expose the children to "scary stuff" that inspired Ms. Meredith to rewrite the classic fairy tales in a style that is more positive, more whimsical, and more humorous; a style that her grandchildren refer to as "tickles and giggles." Each book in the series is "edited" by her granddaughterv nine-year old Catelyn Meredith.
